One of Trader Joe’s fans’ most beloved products was recalled because it may have been contaminated with hard plastic from a permanent marker pen.

According to the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), over 61,839 pounds of Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings were recalled on March 2.

The California-based grocery chain said that the recalled products were sold nationwide.

The problem was discovered after some consumers complained about hard plastic in the product, which comes in 6-oz. boxes containing six dumplings in plastic wrapping.
